Just as spring temperatures have been slow to arrive, so is our spring produce. Strawberries are running behind our normal schedule and so the annual Hinton’s Orchard Strawberry Festival that was originally scheduled for May 18 must be postponed until June 1. We want to ensure that there are plenty of berries for everyone to pick and enjoy on festival day.
There will be strawberries for sale prior to the festival, but we schedule the event for the height of our season. We anticipate beginning to pick strawberries about May 20. As long as the sun shines and we don’t have too much rain!
